TVTV Goes To The Superbowl


Published 1976


Excerpt from a behind-the-scenes documentary about the events and personalities surrounding Superbowl X in Miami between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Dallas Cowboys. Features intimate portraits of the players and the CBS personnel who broadcast the events of Superbowl week. Produced with multiple lightweight video cameras in TVTV style, it is both informative and revealing of the extremes surrounding football culture and hype.

In this clip, some ex-football players play a game for fun in their street clothes. Bill Murray does color commentary while Christopher Guest briefly interviews some of them. Phyllis George of CBS Sports says "the game is good, clean all-American fun." Bill Murray grills Phyllis George as Johnny Unitas runs a pass. Murray asks her which football player she would marry, and George claims the question is sexist. Following this moment, George is playfully brought in the game while all of the men patronizingly let her by. Billy Murray jokes around with Johnny Unitas, who seems like a bit of a lovable doofus. He claims he drives Pontiacs because he likes the Indians on the hood.
